Two knives on the bench, a GORuck fun fest and Indy Car!

 Back it again in the new shop and trying my best to get ahead. Thanks so much for all the support! Some knives are in the works, many more than in recent weeks, so that is a great thing. Hopefully as I get some of these done I will be able to mix in some forging projects as well.

No. 82, a Slicer in O1 is coming along.

 This B.T.K. is also moving along. First knife out of the new shop.

Grinds. Every grind I learn something, although sometimes more than others. This one took a bit longer, but turned out pretty decent.

 My Wilmont LB-1000. This was one of the best investments of 2015 and I use it multiple times a day. Huge thanks to Chris for the hook up at Blade last year.

 A friend of mine, posted a snake he attempted to forge, so I felt compelled to do the same. 1/2" round stock. Available here.

The look ahead. 

 This slicer is sporting a new finish. First try and I think it turned out nice.

Friday night I spent the evening at a GoRuck Tough event. 17 miles in 10 hours of log carrying, burpees in water and all other sorts of suck. Good times and I can't wait for the next one. Gonna mix it up and do a Tough Mudder or Spartan Race, along with a Road Bike race this summer as well. 

 Nothing like low crawling up a hill at 1am.. My Multicam is a dead giveaway.

 GoRuck Tough earned. Whew.

 Our 2016 chicks getting to know some of the older residents.

 Whoot! Grand Prix of Alabama. The family's first road course race!

 Wife and kids watching the first car go by at Barber Motorsports Park.

 The kiddos and the Mayor of Hinchtown, wherever that is..

 Sheath making! Getting 81 and 82 wrapped in some thermoplastic.

Ready for a sharpen and then off to their new owners.

The next batch is ready for heat. A BTK, Slicer and SWK in D2 to get into the mix in the morning.

Refreshed the logo a bit. This will become stickers and patches here soon. Probably do a small run of shirts and other items as well this summer. Stay tuned.
